Unwrapping the Mummy

About Unwrapping the Mummy

We need an archaeologist - can you help? An Egyptian mummy has been discovered and we need a brave individual to enter the burial chamber, unwrap its bandages and uncover the reasons why this person died.

Age 7+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Unwrapping the Mummy are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
